Kent Moth Group

We had a really positive meeting of 30 East Kent Moth-ers yesterday at which we agreed to form a Kent Moth Group which will cover the whole county.  Anyone who is interested in joining the group should email  The main agreements made at the meeting where as follows:

  • The group will meet 6 monthly
  • Karen B and Dave S to contact mothers to invite them to submit records and / or join the group
  • Karen B, Dave S and Richard O to develop a new website for the group
  • All mothers to submit records in a usable format for mapmate
  • Field trips will continue to be arranged informally
  • Information on significant species and migrants to be prioritized for the website and report
  • An electronic newsletter / report will be produced once sufficient data has been verified
  • A small group will meet monthly to oversee progress. Initially this will be Karen Bartlett, Ian and Sally Hunter, Dave Shenton, Ian Hodgson and Francis Solly
  • Close links with Kent Butterfly Conservation to be established

We hope that you enjoy our site and that you will support us by signing up to add your own comments to this page, sending photos and / or sending us your data.  East Kent is a fantastic area for moths and we really hope to provide useful data to the national database and for local reference.
